Thanks for all your kind words and prayers about us dealing with the sickies. They are very much appreciated! We are definitely on the upswing from the cold bug that has been kicking our bum the last couple of weeks. Seriously who gets a cold in the Summer? My kiddos that’s who… boo! Just the thought of flu season makes me shake in fear.
It’s a no-brainer that germs spread like wildfire. More often than not it’s easy to forget that everything we touch has germs, and those germs continue to spread if we don’t keep a handle on them.

germ eye popping perspective.
Does it make anyone else squirm and cringe?
Below are a few easy healthy habits we try to enforce in our home to avoid spreading germs:
1} Lots of hand washing with soap. Those alcohol-based hand rub no wash disinfectants are also super convenient to have in the bathroom and I try and keep one in my purse at all times.
2} Encourage everyone to cover their mouths and noses when they cough.
3} If we are sick we stay home. Period. The worst thing would be to pass on our sickness to others, and start an awful sick cycle in another home.
4} Disinfect like a beast, especially surfaces that are frequently touched. For example doorknobs, refrigerator door handles and light switches. I also disinfect the toy bins frequently. They pretty much scream germ central.
Clorox offers a wide variety of disinfecting products. The Clorox wipes are my favorite and are used throughout our home multiple times a day. Clorox kills germs that live on surfaces for up to 48 hours. That’s called winning friends.
